Hello, Buckyxj,

As you know, it takes a number of combination of drugs to treat a variety of disorders. If you and /or she are concerned, please seek her health care providers' advice for we cannot do this for you. This is not a medical advice BB.

Hope she improves.

I second Siri, Buckyxj. Discuss her medications with her physician...better yet, go to the next appointment with her and discuss them together with the doctor.

Wish you and wife the best.
